Are there a lot of women in the computer sciences field?

I love working on computers and trying to fix them - I was thinking about going back to school to get a computer science degree, but it doesn't seem like there a lot of women who do this? What type of job can you get with a computer science degree? Where I work - we have a guy who comes in and fixes the computers when they start acting up - I would like something like that - so is that what you would do with a computer science degree?
